@GrungGaadZilla: The Modern Day “Dancehall Daddy”!


In this post we pay tribute to the 5 Star General because…we have to give people flowers while they can still smell them. Bless up Bounty!

Rodney Price, more popularly known as Bounty Killa, could be easily called the “Godfather of Dancehall” or the “The Modern Day Dancehall Daddy” based on his musical family tree. His Alliance Music Group started out of Killa’s love for music, which in return gave some of the best Dancehall acts the world has ever seen, namely Busy Signal, Wayne Marshall, Mavado, Vybz Kartel, Kiprich, Bling Dawg, and Aidonia. Outside of his group however, he also introduced us to many others including Spice, Twin of Twins, Cham, and Elephant Man (he was first discovered with his “Scare Dem Crew” members in the mid 90s). In 2011 Bounty made another addition by forming the Alliance Next Generation (A.N.G.) which gave us Iyara, Patexx, Marlon Binns, Kalado, Bridgez, Nymron, Assailant, K-Queens, Prince Pin, Dadda, Venon, Askel, Boom Steppa, 300 and many others. Bounty also lent his ear to Production labels like Pay Day Music, Echo One Productions, and DASECA Music (which is responsible for acts like Serani, Bugle, Dexta Daps, and Raine Seville). The list of names however, continues to grow.

GrandGala2011ZX20110807RM

History has been made as two Deejays that have feuded and made up over the years have finally recorded their first song together. Those artists are Bounty Killa and Beenie Man with their single, “Legendary“. Produced by Esco for StarStruck Records, we hear the veteran artists dropping some legendary lyrics and showing that after all these years, they still have have what it takes when it comes to Dancehall music. An interesting single here and this is something that will have fans asking, “What took y’all so long?“.

MUSIC: @IAmWill x @CodyWise – Birthday


10314560_635749003168565_5558876161485573337_nToday’s new music comes from Pop artists Will.I.Am and Cody Wise with a little twist. Titled “Birthday” and produced by Will.I.Am and Damien LeRoy, this features samples from Jamaica’s own Aidonia (Fi Di Jockey) and Bounty Killa. The song is basically a feel good song that promotes living life to the fullest all the time and celebrating it like it’s your birthday. Sounds like a hit to me here and it’s very interesting to hear Dancehall being sampled in this. Check out the song below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Titled “Mama (Gone But Not Forgotten)” and produced by Digital One Productions, Bounty recalls the moments he had with his mother and promises to live and pass on the lessons he was taught and thanks her for being around.
